Museo della Ceramica (Mondovì)
Piazza Maggiore, 1 - 12084 Mondovì (Cn)
Visiting the Museo della Ceramica means discovering the production techniques and decorative trends that followed one after the other over the course of almost two centuries. The history of the industrial, artistic and cultural development of the Monregalese ceramics region is illustrated with the aid of exhibition panels and with an accessible language, enriched by multimedia aids with a strong and immediate showy impact.
Inside the two halls, distributed over almost 600 square metres, over six hundred ceramics are exhibited; while there are two thousand pieces held in deposits that can be visited, aimed at students, collectors and experts in the subject.
The exhibition is designed as a journey inside a factory where the visitor is introduced, and helped by a multimedia aid in the various phases of ceramics production; from the composition of the raw material, to the techniques of decoration and moulding of same with the final exhibition in the market area of representative pieces of every single technique and the instruments to create it.
The Monregalese Museo della Ceramica joins the cultural offering of a city already rich in attractions and fascination, by reliving in the collective memory a past of work and art creativity and ceramics production, which has awaited adequate consideration and celebration for years.
